“Through disciplinary boundary crossing, a critical geographies of education subfield can respond to the ever‐dynamic social forces and power relations that organize contemporary educational institutions. Anchored in critical scholarship, this subfield can attend to how co‐constitutive ordering systems, such as racism, sexism, and colonialism, shape and are shaped by schools....As an intellectual project rooted in a commitment to communities, such an endeavor would force critical geographers of education to grapple with the full complexity of schooling dynamics, including their relationship to other social movements.” (Nguyen, Cohen, and Huff, 2017)
